Planning Permissions

A tenacious approach to planning over 30 years means we have the experience and proven track record to advise you on gaining planning permission for even the most challenging of projects. Applications for planning permission can be extremely complicated and the quality of the submission is a key factor in obtaining permission which is sometimes elusive.

On your behalf we take the lead in both the design process and the planning submission. With our history of successful planning applications we work to take the burden away from you. We complete all the necessary work, from filling in application forms to negotiating with the Planning Authority.

Once an application is submitted we undertake all the liaison with the Local Authority and we keep you updated and informed right the way through the process. In some circumstances your project may be undertaken under Permitted Development rights and we can advise on whether this would be appropriate for your circumstances.

We also have specific experience and a record of successful Listed Building Consent outcomes in working with historic and listed buildings including dealing with such demanding bodies as English Heritage.

Building Regulations

Once you have obtained planning permission, most projects require a building regulations application to be submitted to your local authority, addressing how the design meets current regulations and other technical requirements.

Our comprehensive service ensures your project progresses seamlessly from planning permission through to building regulation approval and a swift start to your work on site. 

We pride ourselves on keeping right up to date with all the latest changes in legislation and with new building products, ensuring a smooth flow to your project and the selection of the best and most appropriate and cost-effective materials.

  • I needed some urgent help with a structural engineering issue so I sent a message to Howard Architectural on Friday evening. By Monday afternoon at 1400 Nigel and his structural engineer had spoken to my Building Regs officer and sorted the whole thing out! Nigel's professional and positive can-do attitude is exactly what I needed at that stage of my project and also the cost was extremely reasonable. I know who I will be calling if I need any more assistance with my project.Jezz Bird, Fairford, Gloucestershire
